This Is Your Mind...
This Is Your Mind
in a Battle
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood,
but against the rulers, against the authorities,
against the powers of this dark world and against
the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Are you feeling a little tired lately? Confused? Depressed?
Kicked-around? It’s no wonder—you’re in a war.
However, your war isn’t a conventional battle that can
be fought with conventional weapons. Take a look at the scrip-
ture that begins this chapter. This warfare isn’t with other human
beings. Not your arch nemesis at school. Not your teachers. Not
your ex-boyfriend or girlfriend. Not even your parents.
Your enemy is Satan himself, the ex-angel-turned-devil—and
his demonic forces. (The Amplified version of the Bible calls
them “master spirits.”) Satan’s coming after you with a carefully
crafted plan of attack, one you might not even see coming. In
fact, you might not even believe you’re in a war at all. That’s one
of your enemy’s best tricks—deception.
Satan is a liar. Jesus called him “the father of lies and of all that
is false” (John 8:44 AMP). Here are some of his deceptive lines,
which he’ll use as he tries to control your mind. How many of
them have you heard, in one form or another?
■ You don’t need to listen to your parents, your pastor, your
youth leaders, and all those other people who try to tell you
how to live. I mean, look at ’em, those incompetent hyp-
ocrites. Look at all their flaws and inconsistencies. This is your
life. Live it your way.
■ Drinking, drugs, and sex won’t really hurt you. All of those
horror stories won’t happen to you. It’s just a big scare tactic.
Adults just don’t want you to have any fun—even though they
had plenty when they were your age. They just want to control
■ Do you really believe in “the devil”? Some red-skinned bald
dude with a pointy tail and a pitchfork? An intelligent person
like you? Get real—that’s a myth. There is no devil, and there
is no hell. And, by the way, there is no God or heaven, either.
“Right now” is all there is. So, get yours while you can.
